have you see these? Home - HandsOn I thought, well still think they are pricey, but my trainer bought a pair and I borrowed them yesterday, and was very impressed. Got a lit of loose coat out, and she loved the ear rub with them. I loved that I could really give her legs a good rub down, get the dirt out, but still feel. When I had tried them on Fergie I gave my 5 Star pad a stroke...took off all the loose hair, and didn't pill the felt at all. I was going to go and do the inside of her rainsheet, but C was definitely doing the "you borrowed it, not bought it" face...so I gave them back. Definitely thinking of buying despite the price, can do the dogs, cat, carpet, furniture, etc etc, and I think they will be great at bath time. Anyone used them?
